Afghanistan Engineers Association (AEA) is a social, cultural and academic entity, which provides technical, cultural and academic services for the people of Afghanistan. Afghanistan Engineers Association (AEA) was established in 2008 in Kabul, Afghanistan and registered with Ministry of Justice of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in 2009 as an independent assembly. Fortunately, during short time, AEA was appreciated and developed by the Afghan engineers and now we have five agencies which are providing engineering and capacity building services in different provinces of Afghanistan. The members of AEA exceed 2500, from which comprises professionals and specialists and permanent members which are all registered at AEA.

We are providing engineering and capacity building services including conducting of technical and civil trainings and other technical services by Afghan professionals for Afghanistan people. In addition, we are starving to boaster the rehabilitation process of our country’s infrastructures. Moreover, we provide technical and professional trainings for the engineering university students and graduates. As well as AEA provides opportunity and facility for Engineering universities teachers and lecturers all around Afghanistan to pursue their researches at AEA.

AEA cooperates Afghan engineers in various aspects of their lives; we undertake job placement programs for them; boaster them to have their rights not swept in the disputes that they may have; support them financially in case of unexpected injuries or accidents.

AEA is a 100% Afghan managed entity, which since its establishment works with Afghan engineers and Afghan engineering private and public entities. AEA with its mandates defined as raising the technical and managerial knowledge of Afghan engineers and entities so far have been capable of successfully contributing its part in terms the economic and social development of the Afghan society. Having its branches in Afghanistan and overseas, AEA has developed an interlinked community of Afghan engineers both inside Afghanistan and outside the country. AEA is committed to create capabilities, build and develop capacities.

Strategic Intent

Establishing the platform and standpoint for Afghan engineers, based on which development opportunities could be seized by Afghan engineers, shapes the framework of our strategic intent. An evaluation of regionally competitive engineering industry has led us to an end of focusing on developing human resources in the engineering industry of the country. In the race of sourcing human resources, our company is committed to run and win. Moreover, plenty of assets are in hand, which could support us financially. Despite the strengths, we need to struggle elaborately and in a progressive manner so that we could overcome the competitive forces, which naturally attack every organization. AEA strives for the excellence of Afghan engineers through gaining national and international expertise in an effective and efficient manner.

  • Promote a positive relationship with the local community, its agencies and citizens.

Our History

AEA began back in 2008; it was a time that there was a normative need for such an organization as AEA. There were very few centers active in the engineering industry development and those few ones were operating only in training very basic trainings. Soon, AEA made it to stand as a well-known and authenticating academic and social center. AEA first started from conducting training programs which comprised of holding courses for Afghan engineers in the field of quality control management and surveying. At that time, only main branch was established and there were no other offices of AEA at provinces. Very soon everything changed. AEA spread its operational fields and extended its activities from Kabul to provinces. In 2009, AEA opened its Jalalabad, Maidan Wardak, and Herat Branches. Subsequently, Mazar, Kandahar, Ghazni and Kunduz branches were opened. A well-integrated network of Afghan engineers was established. AEA organized registered members whom are all engineers into appropriate departments and committees. It was time that AEA was not only undertaking basic engineering trainings but authentic and extensive engineering subjects being taught by lecturers with advanced level of expertise. Following its Article of Association, AEA embarked on achieving its mandates that is contributing in the rehabilitation of the country; conducting engineering researches; holding capacity building and development programs; integrating Afghan engineers inside and outside the country; job placement of Afghan engineers; cooperating Afghan engineers in terms of solving their social, security, or financial problems; over sighting the rehabilitation process of the country. Getting eligible to oversight and conduct developmental projects and research projects, AEA gained credence to act as entity that the Afghan government would reckon with for the purpose of evaluating and monitoring of engineering initiatives and building and developing the capacity of Afghan engineers and military construction projects. Working with our strategic alliances, we have on the eve of getting contracts of fuel supply, mining, and healthcare services. AEA is now running with particular departments for design, construction, planning, operation and maintenance services. Each department is managed by highly educated Afghan engineers. AEA has a track record of success from its previous experience and has a number of advantages that will enable us to take on any challenges.
